Edwina Reizer Poems
What Is Family?
A family is love That puts itself above Everything else in this world.
BEAUTY OF LIFE
I wonder as I look around at all the beauty that I've found. I've found it in the smallest places. I've found it in the smiles on faces.
A BALLAD FOR HELEN KELLER
How can I know what I can't see? It's never been a part of me. How can I know what I can't hear?
LIAR, LIAR PANTS ON FIRE
Liar, liar we see the fire coming from your mouth each day. The fire that burns the truth as we struggle along our way,
The frightened ballerina, standing on her toes stood behind the curtain in a dainty pose.
MOTHER EARTH CRIES OUT
Peace, please come to me. I am the earth, the land and the sea. I'm home to the animals
Amelia, Amelia where did you go? They’ve searched and searched but still we don’t know. Oh the courage to fly in the air
SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST
When the lion roars and makes himself heard all in the jungle shall listen As he stalks his prey from hunger he feels on his face his eyes do glisten.
You want to have fear? Listen to what you hear emanating on sound waves approaching your ear.
Some drink to take away pain. Some eat and try to forget. Some think and try to just stay sane. Some cry big tears so wet.
A SCENT OF LOVE
If I could be enclosed within a flower on your vest, I would inflame your senses and you could not rest
ODE TO DREAMS
No one can see into my dreams and so they're mine alone. I travel places and meet old friends and some I've never known.
BALLAD OF MARTIN LUTHER KING
Born with a legacy he had to fulfill his life was constantly marching uphill. Until he could reach the mountain top, he realized this was something he never could stop.
Why is it that man looks great even with a bald pate? And a woman’s crowning glory usually has an early date

What Is Family?
A family is love
That puts itself above
Everything else in this world.
A family is trust
That's fair and just
In its treatment of each other.
A family is pride
And will never hide
Its feelings for one another.
A family is dear
And won't disappear
When things are getting tough.
A family is hope
That learns to cope
With all that comes their way.
A family is sound
With their feet on the ground
On every brand new day.
A family is kind
And will always find
The time to be together.
A family is wise
